It's a phenomenal figure. 

I donno about that. I've opened 5 and I can't get any of them to stand. :P

I saw the same thing at RS.  I have opened 17 and can't get any of them to fall over!  It seems so sturdy to me.  What gives?  That's really weird.

it really depends on the way you position their feet i guess ( ankles bent all the way to the front and all)
im starting to think that the marine is semi warming is because his problem standing. the only problem i see with him anways..well ok and his kama is annoying at times.im thinking i may give him some justice though and pick anymore i see that are warming...only if I can find a mundi first though...kinda pointless getting all these guys for a mundi killing scene especially when you dont have the soon to be dead.

i tried switching the parts of bacara with a #41 clone as well but i notice the head sits very loosely. any one know how to fix it :S

No. I don't really do any customizing. I knew Bacara's head didn't fit right, but I was tired of not having a poseable one. I just bit the bullet and made the swap. I find if you put the head on all the way, it drops all the way to the shoulders and looks like he has no neck. I just put it on until it stays where I want it, and stop there. It's not a proper fit; you just have to balance it where you want it.

What I did is this...

Take #41 Clone & Bacara...

Take off Bacara's head, and cut the ball off his neckpost perfectly.  Cut the ball off the #41's neckpost as well.  Take plastic welder (Plast-Struct) and weld the Bacara Neckball onto the #41 body, let it cure overnight at least.  Paint any possible white showing with just a dab of flat black, very simple...

Pop on Bacara's head.

The problem I ran into more was getting Bac's shoulder pad onto the #41 body.  I tried stretching it after a boil but it was gonna tear I think.  I wound up cutting a groove into the figure's back and under his armpits that fit the straps of the shoulder/chest pad into it perfectly, and allowed the accessory to fit the figure perfectly.  A way to avoid this would've likely been using the #6 Clone (Quick Draw) as opposed to teh SA figure.  It has a smaller "backpack" piece to it and is generally thinner built I think.  Changing neckballs would've been the same procedure (if you needed to change it at all?).

I also swapped out the left hands of Bacara and the #41.  The Bacara hand is cool and unique, and good for "calling troops forward".

i like this figure very much, and even better than the airborne, because the airborne doesn't stand -.-

I hear that a lot...

I dunno, I have like 8 Airborne's and all of 'em stand fine for me...  Some have feet bowed inwards somewhat but they still stand ok.

Same here, 15 Airbornes all standing on their own.
